Find out which Singapore restaurants received the coveted Michelin stars this year.
(8.55pm: And all the winners are in!)
Stargazing Michelin junkies, the wait is over. This year’s 38 awardees (9 more than last year) were feted tonight at the Michelin Guide Singapore 2017 Star Event, held at the Fullerton Hotel ballroom.
First up were the one-star recipients. A whopping 30 restaurants made the cut, up from 22 last year. 11 are new on the list, including Cheek by Jowl, Chef Kang’s, Iggy’s and Meta. We’re happy that mod-Sin restaurant Labyrinth, by chef Han Liguang, earned a star. “The award belongs to my team at Labyrinth, who are working right now while I’m enjoying myself here,” said Han.
The two hawker stalls that were on the list last year—Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle and Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle—are return winners, and remain the only street food entries.
Unfortunately, Tokyo-Italian restaurant Terra and Forest in Resorts World Sentosa were stripped of their stars.
The two- and three-star lists remain the same as last year’s, with the addition of Waku Ghin, moving up from one star to two. Heartiest congratulations to one of the most humble and kind chefs, Tetsuya Wakuda!
